The Maracaibo Boxing Gala organized by the Mayor’s Office and the World Boxing Association, which had been successfully taking place at the intersection of the Curva de Molina on the afternoon of Saturday, October 2, was suspended in the ninth bout out of a total of 16, before the torrential downpour registered.

The nine fights in tribute to the WBA super featherweight champion Roger “The Kid” Gutiérrez left a pleasant taste in the audience and special guests.

The seven bouts of the program that were suspended, including two bouts for the WBA Fedebol and Fedecaribe titles, will be rescheduled by the authorities.

Frank Rojas from Merida was the first winner of the evening, knocking out Gregorio Marcano of Anzoatigue in the third round, in a six-round super welterweight fight.

Subsequently, Alimer Estrella, from Zulia, defeated Julián López from Lara 2-1, in super welterweight. The third confrontation resulted in an exciting victory for Zulia’s Jonathan Díaz, who beat his countryman Jesús Cariel by unanimous decision 3-0.

The other victories were for the Maracaibo Anthony Sáez and Angelvis González from Littoral in welterweight, Yainiret Altuve in light fly. Maracaibero Wilson Ruiz also won.
